Switch back from Mirrorless to DSLR? Canon EOS 6D Mark II

People usually switch from DSLR to Mirrorless

I am the opposite

One year ago, I switched from DSLR to mirrorless camera for its light and small size.

After using mirrorless camera for more than a year, I decided to go back to DSLR. Probably not a 100% switch back, I will still keep my Fujifilm camera for daily use.

I have no complaint with my Fujifilm X-T10, it is light, quality is not bad (I’m not a pro), it is a great camera. So why going back?

The turning point is the safari trip.

I found that I need to improve my Mirrorless camera and lens (the true is my photography skill). I need a camera with a better viewfinder, Shutter lag, noise control and a better telephoto lens.

My Fujifilm X-T10 is only a entry level mirrorless camera, I can buy a new mid-range or high-end mirrorless camera. However after take the telephoto lens into account, DSLR has more choices of telephoto lens, and the weight and size of a mirrorless camera’s telephoto lens is not that light or small (though they are still lighter and smaller).

What a good excuse to buy a new camera!

EOS 6D Mark II

I sold my EF lenses last year because I thought there should be no turning back.

and now I regret …

EF 40mm f/2.8 STM

I pre-ordered the exclusive kit set on Canon online shop, EOS 6D Mark II with EF 40mm f/2.8 STM. Honestly this lens is not my first choice, because it is 40mm not 35mm and the maximum aperture is only f/2.8. If I’m not happy with this lens, probably I will buy EF 35mm f/2 IS USM, then 40mm would be a redundant.

But I found this pancake lens is not bad, it is cheap, super small and light.

EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM

A breakthrough, not a kit lens
